Hi
So all these online shopping websites send us GST invoices. As a seller you have to be GST compliant to be able to sell. But these websites, like flipkart, they don’t support B2B transaction. Hence you can’t give your GST number to claim it. Now consider I own a small shop or small business. I want to put a TV in my work place. Since I’m registered with GST, I have the right to claim it in my purchase by getting my number quoted on the bill by the seller. That way we are sure that the seller also is showing that as his sale and paying GST to the government. The customer care says they don’t support adding GST number on the invoice. Why is that? The scenario as given above, ain’t it more of a consumer buying it, but just being able to claim GST because that electronic item is an asset of his business? So why can’t we claim GST on online shopping?

But not everything is available, right? Like in my example, I wanted to buy a VU TV from the upcoming sale on flipkart, but was quite disappointed to know that almost 28% of the cost which I can recover in terms of GST claim, can’t do it now. Anyways, I would like to know why is this feature missing? Are they trying to evade some of the tax?

I think Amazon doesn’t support reselling. If you put your own GSTIN, you become reseller.

But it’s not always true that claiming gst means reselling. As in the example I gave.
